UFC Quick Quote: Georges St. Pierre 'might hold two titles at the same time'


"I plan to do it at one point in my career. The problem is not to go up. The problem is to go back down after. And it's not good to play with your health because when you gain weight and you jump another weight class, the reaction time is different. The reaction time for a fighter is very important. You have the reaction time and the reset time. And this thing, when you add weight to yourself and you change weight class it changes, according to the weight class. So that's the problem. I want to make sure I've done everything I had to do in my division before I go up, because once I go up, I might for a little bit hold two titles at the same time, but as soon I'm going to go up and take care of business when I'm up, I'm going to let go of my other title."

-- UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre tells Joe Rogan on Ultimate Insider that he plans to eventually hold two titles simultaneously. Then, once he decides he's going to stay at 185-pounds for good, he'll give up the 170-pound strap. Fans have clamored for quite a while now to see "GSP" go toe-to-toe with Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and from listening to him tell it, "Rush" thinks the gold the "Spider" is carrying around will one day be his. But will he have to go through the Brazilian knockout artist to get it? Vitor Belfort and Josh Koscheck might throw a monkey-wrench into those plans but this may be the only true Superfight left in the current world of mixed martial arts. Will we ever get to see it? For that matter, is the usually soft-spoken St. Pierre getting a little cocky?
